Because I am still not feeling 100% and I am a teensy bit shy, I thought I would post retrospectively rather than make a bold claim and not be able to live up to it. Aren't I silly??
MONDAY:Anyway, first up is the blue dress from my post last week - which had fallen-down-hem-and-sleeves in the weekend but is now completely wearable:
|Blue polyester shirt dress, Milton Salvation Army $4|
teamed up with grey cardigan from Recycle Boutique $4.50
silver grey waist belt from Portmans - bought on sale for less than $20 about 4 years ago
|Rock and Roll Skirt, St V de P $4|
lurex top with silver embroidery, one of 10 items in a $1 fill a bag at Port Chalmers School fair
yellow shoes from Rubi $10, bought before Christmas
Here is a close up of the shoes - they are totally fake ie made from made in china man made stuff, but they are very comfortable and they make me think of my mothers Scholl sandals she wore in the 1970s.
WEDNESDAY: I forgot to take a photo....honestly I was dog-tired when I got home and not in the mood for having my photo taken. I wore a shift dress I bought from Milton which I have discovered is a teeny tiny bit small for me across the shoulders and when I put my arms forward the hem shot upwards dramatically.
THURSDAY: Today, I confess I needed to wear a long skirt because I was too lazy to shave my legs. So, I dug out a long black vintage petticoat I bought in Oamaru as my starting point - here I am at the end of the day:
Vintage petticoat $10 bought at Oamaru Victorian Fete - this was the first wearing!!
|Close up of top made by refashioning a dress I made last year and using a $5 scarf from Equip to make the sleeves, front facing and the bow. Worn with black Obi belt bought from Ezibuy about 7 years ago.|
Black cut glass Deco necklace from Trademe
|Jewellery and shoes:|
Turquoise coloured stone ring $3 Warrington Market
Bubble glitter flower ring which was a gift from my lovely daughter.
She bought it from Harry Wragg in Melbourne, not the one in town the one in Brunswick Street.
Shell coloured bracelet from JayJays $5
Beloved Keds from the Warehouse about 2 years ago for $7 - on sale
So, tomorrow is day 5 of my personal challenge. I have to wear an item or a combination of items that I have not worn previously. As I work in an office I can't wear the light blue coloured slip and rainbow jacket I have been wanting to wear for ages, nor the while and purple flowered caftan-esque housecoat. I will post the results in the weekend. Hope you are all having a great week and whatever challenges you are facing, whether they be by choice or chance, I hope you are successful!
